    Tutorial to Withdraw Funds to Bank Account from Paypal

    To withdraw funds from your paypal account to a bank account, you need to give all your Bank details along with IFSC Code and Account number. Before you start doing this you need to have the following information with you.
    1. Your Bank Account Name
    2. Your Bank Account Number
    3. Your Bank Branch Code
    4. IFSC Code

    In order to find the IFSC code you need to make sure that your bank is NEFT enabled ie offers you Online Banking services. You can also download the list directly from Reserve Bank of India website and check out if your bank is listed. There are many details available in this which includes MICR, SWIFT, IFSC Codes out of which you need to trace out your bank branch and get the code.

    While entering your Bank Account name you need to make sure that your paypal’s account also has the same name. You can to your paypal profile page and view the account name you have setup while signing up, which is listed as Merchant Name. You can even request via Help>Contact Us option to change you name in personal and premium accounts.

    Paypal Withdraw Bank India FundsThen move to the withdrawals tab and select ‘Withdraw funds to your bank account’ option which is free service for amounts more than 7000Rs and chargeable at 50Rs for less than 7000Rs amount withdrawals. With the following screen asking you to ‘Add a bank account in India’

    Once you add your bank account with the details, you will be shown with a message like ‘You have successfully added a bank account.’ following which you can withdraw funds. Try to go for the lowest withdrawal possible because 50Rs wont hurt you in terms of fees but its safe to go with the lowest withdrawal for the first time. If your transfer is rejected you will be charged with 250Rs return fees in your paypal account.

    Once the withdrawal request is made you need to wait for 5-7 business days for the transaction to be completed. This is a very good option because you dont need to wait for more than a month for withdrawing via check which again you need to deposit in the bank and again wait for clearance.

    Satyam Scam - The biggest fraud in Indian IT sector

    Satyam Computer Services Ltd is in a total mess with the Former Satyam Chairman B Ramalinga Raju surrendering before the andhra pradesh police under sections 120B, 409, 420, 468, 471. Along with him his brother and the companies CFO was also arrested on friday evening. The Securities and Exchange Board of India [SEBI] has ordered for an enquiry to look into this matter in detail.

    Along with this news the most important point would be the stock prices dipping more and reached 6Rs/share which is seriously very low considering it was trading it 400-500Rs levels a year back. The stock prices clearly shows that the company has lost its value among the investors and everyone is looking to sell out.

    Satyam CEO Hand-Cuffed Jail Scammer

    I would recommend all the investors to still hold the stock because when they have already lost 90% of the value why not atleast risk with the 10%? If this 10% again grows back to atleast 30-40% after some days by chance in case of the take over/ acquitision then you have a better option rather than regretting in the future.

    The stocks closed at 23.75Rs which is again 41% down from the last trading day and it was originally moving up from the 6Rs figure which means that there are still many people who believe in the company. The owners would be scammers but not the 53000 employees who worked hard in the company to fulfil their targets and there are numerious Saytam clients who are still willing to continue with the company and are ready to give contracts/orders.

    The only problem would be that since the company is in a problem now, all their accounts would be siezed and even if the business operations are operated the payments would be struck. This is the reason the employees are in panic stage and have already started looking out for new job options in case the company is closed for a while. Along with the already employed staff there are around 10000 freshers every year who are in waitlist waiting for their call from Satyam who are also going to not get a call back and they now have to apply for other MNC’s.

    Scam Exchanging Money Satyam Case

    Iam sure its not along Raju in this whole drama who has claimed that he is alone responsible but how do you think a single person can do such a big fraud? What about the people are always with him in his business operations? What about the government who gave the company public lands at dirt cheap amounts? Will the public have to bear the loss made by these big scammers?

    Not only the satyam clients but their employees are also having a hufe confidence in the company and are sure that the company will continue in the long run along with better growth but the question stands the same - When?

    Scammers Satyam Jail Stocks DownOne of the biggest Chartered Accountancy - PricewaterhouseCoopers which is highly reputed in India because there are thousands of students trying to get into PWC for completing their CA Course, is also in question because this firm was handling all the Satyam’s operations and if such a big scam was running around how did PWC not find out? Or were these guys also bribed by Mr Raju in tunes of crores of rupees and will this networked chain keep continuing?

    The website of Ramalinga Raju which is is also totally down which again adds up another negative point because if you start hiding more and more stuff from the public you are going to be accused more for your mistakes. Not only this small site but the corporate website ie was also giving problems in the last 3-4 days with no downloads given to the public for the company data.

    The retail investors amount to approx 25% who have now lost 90% of their value and along with the already falling down stock markets satyam has added a big loss for everyone and now everyone is looking for either selling the stocks for almost no value or else buy some more stocks at this low rates to average their old portfolio and hope it recovers back soon to atleast the costs. The village from which Ramalinga Raju hails still believes on him and all his known ones are buying huge amount of stocks at the moment to prove that they believe him and there is no need to worry about the company. Lets wait and see how this whole story turns out and where does Satyam stand after a month.
